The head from the Akkadian Empire, unearthed by Iraqi archaeologists in 1982, has been united with a replica of a headless torso discovered over a century ago, Baghdad Museum curator Mohsen Hassan Ali told AFP.
The replica of the stone torso held in Berlin’s Pergamon Museum was handed over at a ceremony last week and in return, the Baghdad Museum has donated a copy of the head to fit the torso in Germany. “We have succeeded in bringing the two parts together, more or less, after a very long time,” Ali said.
